Take Holland Home
Dutch wooden clogs and windmills are popping up all over the market. Clogs are still used by farmers in the Netherlands- they’re perfect for gardening! The windmill clock is from the 1960s and the metal yard decor windmill was hand-made in the 1940s. All that’s needed to complete this picture is tulips. Will you being going Dutch at the next market?
With over 800 sellers to check out, a girl can get tired. First, I refueled with a soda and snack from the concession stand. Later on in the day I was ready to rest my feet. Luckily I found these stylish chairs at Danish Modern NoHo to relax in.
Unique Market Finds
There are always unique treasures to be found and the February market did not disappoint. I came across the 1976 sheet music for Evergreen by Barbara Streisand.The song won a Grammy, Oscar, and Golden Globe. Yosemite Sam comes from the Warner Bros.Studio Store (that went out of business over 10 years ago). How could I miss a giant parrot! This attention-grabbing piece came from a carnival. The painting by Peter Hunt was originally part of a 1940's armoire that was broken down into sections.
